Oosterpark vandaag. Ink, pencil and crayon drawing of plant-life in Amsterdam’s Oosterpark today.
Everything in this drawing is based on people, things and scenes found on Google Streetview. A boy running somewhere in Dhaka. A couple checking something on their phone in Maun. Men asleep on a bench in Southern Sovania. The side of a building somewhere in Poland.
I’m completely fascinated by Streetview.
All drawn in different kinds of cobalt blue: pencil, gel pen and crayon. I wanted to get a Delft-blue style look going, and I sent away for as many different drawing materials in cobalt blue as I could, but they all came back in these different shades of blue. I have no idea what the real cobalt blue should look like. But there we go.
